Carsten Schürmann: Digital Democracy and Electronic Elections

Carsten Schürmann is the leader of the Demtech research center, which studies the interplay between technology and democracy. Carsten is a world leading expert in computer security and critical digital infrastructure, with a background in the theory of programming languages and logics.

We talk to him about digital democracy, in particular electronic elections, including online voting. The goal of democratic elections is the peaceful transition of government, which means that both winners and loser must trust the outcome of the result. How is this trust generated if the details of voting are no longer transparent?
